  2. Select File > Preferences.
  3. Select Repositories on the left. This option shows the available repositories that have been added to Installation Manager.
  4. Select Add Repository if Z and I Emulator for Web is not listed.
  5. Click Browse and navigate to the location of the extracted Z and I Emulator for Web path. Select the diskTag.inf file present in the disk1 folder for the initial install.
  6. Click OK and the new repository location should be listed.
  7. Click Test Connections to ensure that the Repository URL is available.
  8. From the start page of the Installation Manager, click Install. The Installation Manager searches the defined repositories for available packages.

  10. Read the license agreements. If you agree to the terms of the license agreement, click I accept the terms of the license agreement, and click Next to continue.
  11. Select Create a new package group and choose the Architecture.
  12. If operating system is 64-bit, you need to select 64-bit or 32-bit to install the product in the corresponding bit mode.
  13. Click Next.
  14. Select the languages you want to install. The default is English. Click Next.
  15. Select the Z and I Emulator for Web 2.0 feature. Click Next.
  16. Review and specify all information under the Z and I Emulator for Web 2.0 tab.
    1. On the Publish Information panel under Z and I Emulator for Web 2.0, set the Publish directory, specify the web-server alias and the Service Manager Port number. Click Next.
      The publish directory must be available to clients. You can designate the path of the publish directory. Perform the following steps:
      1. Specify an alias for the directory, default is zieweb.
      2. Specify the Service Manager port, through which Z and I Emulator for Web clients communicate with the Service Manager. This communication is necessary for the following deployment options:
        • Using the configuration server to maintain session configuration information as in the configuration server-based and combined deployment models, described in Planning for deployment.
        • HCL recommends designating port 8999 for these purposes. Check your server documentation to see if this port is being used. If it is in use, you can change the port during the installation or later. For more information about changing the Service Manager port, see Changing the Service Manager's configuration port in the online help.
    2. On Web server panel under Z and I Emulator for Web 2.0, select the web-server option that is appropriate for your requirement:
      • Select No Web Server when web server is configured manually by the user. The user is advised to contact their web server administrator or refer to the web server documentation for details.
      • Select Embedded Web Server when the web server provided with the application is used. The non-secure and secure port numbers for the embedded web server are auto-populated, and the administrators have the option to configure the port numbers as per their requirements.
      • Select the option 'Select from list of detected web server' and then select the web-server from the list if more than one detected.
      • Select the option Manually select specific web server, in case a IBM HTTP Server or Apache web-server is installed but not detected.
        • Select the type of web server that is installed on your system.
        • Click on the Browse button and navigate to the configuration file (httpd.conf) for the web server installed in your system. You can alternatively type into the field the complete path of the httpd.conf file in the web server installation directory.
    3. On the Application server panel under Z and I Emulator for Web, if the installation program detects IBM WebSphere Application Server on your system, you can configure the Configuration Servlet. The next panel from Application Server tab asks if you want to configure the ZIEWeb Configuration Servlet in WebSphere Application Server. See Installing the configuration servlet for more information.

      Uncheck the check box if you do not plan to use Configuration Servlet.

      If you plan to use Configuration Servlet, select the application server from the list detected. The installation program automatically deploys the configuration servlet on the Web application server you designate, and it configures your clients to access the Service Manager through the servlet.

      • The Websphere application server is detected if it is installed by the same IBM Installation Manager program on the system. The versions that can be detected are Websphere Application Server V8.0 and V8.5.2.
      • An Application Server with administrative security enabled is not supported for servlet configuration during the installation.
    4. Once the panels are appropriately updated, click Next.
  17. Review the summary information, and click Install.
  18. Once the installation completes, a summary page is displayed. Review the messages.
    • If the installation is successful, the program displays a message indicating that the installation is successful. The program might also display important post-installation instructions. Click Finish.
    • If the installation is not successful, click View Log File to troubleshoot the problem.
  19. To ensure the install is completed successfully, you can take the following additional actions:
    1. Restart the web server.
    2. Ensure that ZIEWeb pages are accessible over the browser. If not, check the web server configuration and ensure that files in the Z and I Emulator for Web publish directory are accessible. Refer to your web server documentation for the configuring details.
